AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE LOSSES, COLLISION COVERAGES; RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN LOSSES AND VEHICLE BODY STYLE 1974 AND 1975 MODELS

The Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI), formed in December 1972, is a nonprofit organization that gathers, processes, and provides the public with insurance data concerned with human and economic losses resulting from highway crashes. Among research results published by HLDI are reports summarizing collision coverage insurance loss experience associated with specific vehicle characteristics. These reports cover the experience of the private passenger vehicles of specific model years, and the results describe variations in both the frequencies and size of claims under collision coverage--that is, insurance covering damage to the insured vehicle itself. This HLDI report describes differences in the collision coverage loss experience of corresponding two-door, four-door, and station wagon body styles within specific car lines for 1974 and 1975 model year vehicles. Descriptions of the sources and nature of the data and the method of data analysis are presented in Appendices A and B, respectively. It is intended that the dissemination of this and forthcoming HLDI reports will contribute to research into ways for reducing highway damage to people and their property.
